    What are you grilling, smoking, or barbecuing?

    Steaks.

    Dry aged, USDA PRIME Steaks. These are 2" thick, Bone-In New York steaks with lots of natural marbling. You can't get these bad boys from the grocery store, you need a real butcher or a restaurant purveyor that will sell to you.

    I rub them with coarse natural Himalayan sea salt and let them sit out at room temperature for about 3-4 hours.

    They hit the grill at the highest temperature possible. I do about 3 mins, then rotate 25% for the perfect grill marks. I flip 'em at 6 minutes, then rotate once more at 9 mins. Then I use my thumb to determine how well they are cooked. I like mine medium rare. But the Redhead wants hers Medium. usually takes between 11-13 minutes to get both perfect.

    I'll serve these bad boys with a huge slice of D'Affinois cheese on top (I put the steaks in a foil tent for 5-6 minutes as soon as they come off the grill- the cheese melts ...OMFG!!) , grilled asparagus, a grilled avocado, grilled Anaheim Chile Peppers, a tomato/cucumber salad with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, and a bottle (or three) of Napa Valley Meritage.

    Life is good!!
